Season Summary Edit
Arriving in the exotic paradise of Bundala National Park are 20 contestants representing each previous season: Okinawa Islands, Kenya, Belize, New Zealand, and Honduras. Located in Sri Lanka's Southern Province, the returning men and women are greeted and congratulated on participating in the show's first all-star season. The players are immediately introduced to the Faction format, in which they'll compete in large groups as opposed to pairs of two. Separated based on their prior season, the contestants reconnect with familiar faces as they prepare for the game to begin.
Faction Stage Edit
The players representing Kenya and New Zealand have a tough time burying the hatchet. Within the faction representing the second season, Tatianna openly expresses her irritation with the format. She mentions not wanting to work with Natalie or Johnny based on past experiences. Dustin comforts her for the sake of unity and offers to form an alliance with her, much to the dismay of Natalie and Johnny. Over on the New Zealand side, Sabrina and Sienna form a bond and question the loyalties of both Craig and Jesse due to their history. Craig becomes concerned over the new format, feeling that he may become an early target.
At the first exemption challenge of the season, the intensity leads to unfortunate events with Alexis being forced to seek medical attention for a leg injury. Ultimately, the Kenya faction wins and decides to grant exemption for Honduras after losing a player. The remaining three factions cast their ballots for the first Danger Dome, in which Belize and New Zealand each agree to target the stacked Okinawa team. Following Peter's elimination, the third and fourth seasons formed an alliance. They also worked on getting Honduras on their side in order to take out bigger targets. Despite losing Jesse, internal issues added to the built alliance and ended up with Natalie, Johnny, and Madison being eliminated.
During the fourth episode, the remaining members of Kenya won the exemption challenge and granted immunity to Belize in exchange for future safety. In an effort to break up the major alliance, Tatianna and Dustin made a secret deal with Jared and Shannon to dismantle the other factions. With Sabrina receiving an automatic Danger Dome nomination, the new foursome worked on getting all of New Zealand to face elimination. Although Honduras was set to target Craig, Jared convinced Toby to vote Sienna as well in order to increase their odds. New Zealand attempted to counter the plan by aligning with Kyle and Bethany from the first season. They agreed to target Austin, and ultimately two strong players were eliminated when Austin and Craig were both sent home.
Solo Stage Edit
Upon beginning the individual portion of the game, the alliances were initially drawn with Belize working with the remaining Honduras faction, Jared and Shannon working with Tatianna and Dustin left from the Kenya faction, and Bethany, Kyle, Sabrina, and Sienna formed as outsiders.
Episode 5 showed both alliance's going after the largest physical threat on each side - Kyle and Tanner. A sneak vote from Tatianna led to Bethany's nomination and ultimate elimination. Following Kyle's exemption challenge win on the next episode, the main alliance scrambled to form a plan. Due to the only outsider eligible for voting being Sabrina, Jared and Shannon agreed that facing her would be too risky and decided to end their alliance with Tatianna and Dustin. In order to protect themselves, they claimed that their plan was to target Toby. The Danger Dome showed Tatianna and Dustin surviving with Toby seemingly going home, until he played the Resurrection Medallion and cancelled out his elimination.
Issues began to plague the Belize faction when Erika and Tanner wanted to target Toby and Yara, as they felt the remaining Honduras representatives were getting a free ride. Jared and Shannon used this as fuel to form a solid pact with Toby and Yara in order to send Erika home. Following this, Jared and Kyle made a deal to secure each other and have the remaining outsiders eliminated. The eliminations of Tatianna and Tanner soon followed.
In the final six seven, the deal between Jared and Kyle helped keep Jared out of danger, although Shannon was eliminated during this time. In the final five, Sabrina spared herself from the Danger Dome and nominated the three remaining men to compete, in which Kyle was shockingly eliminated. The final exemption challenge of the season guaranteed Jared a spot in the finals, and Sabrina and Toby each secured their spots when they survived the final Danger Dome of the season.
The three finalists - Jared, Sabrina, and Toby - each faced the all-star jury of nine and pleaded their case as to why they deserved the grand prize. Jared explained coming back for redemption and to prove that he truly had what it took to win the game. From the very start, he mentioned reforming old alliances as well as building new alliances at the right time. He took credit for eliminating some of the greatest contestants and for being an incredible physical threat, a cunning strategist, and a smart social player. Sabrina drew attention to her substantial improvement from her last appearance and being able to survive to the very end despite being on the outside for the majority of the game. She took credit in beating out strong players in the Danger Dome and also helping her allies when they needed her most. Toby showcased his willingness to play harder compared to last time and taking more risks in the game than before. He explained that because he wasn't viewed as an immediate threat, he was able to play undetected and form strong bonds with the other players.
The jury congratulated each player for their improvements from their last seasons. Jared received acclaim for his tenacity and for covering all of his bases throughout the game. Erika expressed disappointment with how Jared "overplayed" in certain areas but nonetheless praised him for controlling the game. Sabrina was also viewed positively by the jury due to how hard she played on All Stars. Despite being viewed as deserving of the prize, jurors felt that Jared overshadowed her in the game. Bethany and Sienna were the biggest supporters of Sabrina's game. In contrast to the other finalists, Toby's game wasn't received as well. The jurors agreed that Toby's position in the game wasn't based on his abilities, but rather his luck. Tanner mentioned how "protected he was by others so that they could use him as a goat". While the Resurrection Medallion play stunned the contestants, the jury felt that it highlighted Toby's luck and that he would've left much earlier in the game.
In the end, Jared Fife of the series' third season Belize defeated Sabrina Pena of New Zealand and Tobias "Toby" Muscarella of Honduras in a 7-2-0 vote. Fife became the first all-star winner and sixth person to be the last one standing and win the $2,000,000 prize.
